Bulgaria in pictures: Sand Sculptures Festival in Burgas

“Kids wished for” is the name of the 14th edition of the Burgas Sand Sculptures Festival

A survey conducted among children aged between 7 and 12 shows their most preferred fictional characters- Pipi Longstocking, SpongeBob Square Pants, Ariel (the Little Mermaid), Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter, etc. 

The sculptures are made of special rain-resistant sand and cover an area of 0.5 hectares in the Ezero Park near the Horse Base in Burgas.  

Hurry up to visit the Burgas Sand Sculptures Festival, if you haven’t done it already. The tourist attraction will be open for visitors until September 29.
